prezzies and quilts.........

Thanks for all you lovely comments on my last post.............it's friendships that keep you going............
Last week in the mail I received these goodies from Loz..........the charm pack is lovely...........can't wait to make something from it.........
Also when Jenny came to visit she brought me some presents..........funny thing is we met in town and she found a great bird brooch at the shop and I had looked to see if they had any chooks but no.............then I open this parcel and look what was inside..............love the chook brooch.........some great fabrics.........and also some binding clips..........which came in to good use on the weekend binding marathon.............and Jenny had to borrow a couple of mine since she forgot to bring hers...........there are actually 10 clips but some were on a quilt at the time...........
But the best thing Jenny brought with her is below..............
Yes that's is an air conditioner you see...............she replaced some with split systems in the house so gave me the old ones...........this is so exciting..............I was actually testing it out on Monday afternoon when the fires struck.............it won't be big enough on a stinking hot day but it was 35 the other day and it was fine for me............I had it sitting through the window testing it out............my shed is such a "hand me down" "recycled" shed it isn't funny....I am so lucky Jenny thought of me..............with the week that's been it seems like Jenny was here weeks ago but it was only on the weekend.........such a nice time together.........

2 more quilts for Caring with Quilts....................thanks Kerri.WillowGrove Quilts.......it's not to late to help out........don't forget quilts can be dropped in at The Home Patch Bathurst and Cottage on the Hill Nundle.....
Catch you later..............

  8. I think you need to think of your Chookshed as a WIP or UFO - a long term project. Lovely collection of goodies for you.

  9. How lovely to receive such great gifts. The chook brooch is gorgeous. Those binding clips are so good arent they. How did we manage before them? Enjoy the air conditioner - any help against the heat has to be good.

  12. Hey.... you are right on trend! Recycling is 'THE' thing to be doing these days. I know that Chooks belong in sheds but maybe if you started calling it your craft studio...... ;o) It has air con now... how many sheds have that!! Enjoy! Lovely fabrics and brooch...
